Sometimes being a mum is draining , frustrating and all round wtf moments , but for us to calm the beast of whatever it may be, is a good stroll outside , a bug hunt or a harvest , often both , its a common ground of wonder and subsides the grump and brings the smiles .
We did find 9 stink bugs who have meet a watery death , we harvested some broad beans , brocolli , peas , strawberries and carrots which all went into dinner with pototoes and bacon it was delish .
Last day for tips so here are some heavy hitters .
1 plant for your conditions its just to stressful attempting to baby things though frost or dry .
2 never be afraid to change and rearrange , if a plant is not doing well check its needs adjust as required .
3 think outside the boxes , look what you have around as far as supports , shade supplie , ties etc often old clothes repurposed work wonders .
4 plant radish and carrots together , the radishes will be ready as the carrots need thinning .
5 protect from pests with covers , it saves soooo much time later on .
6 make sure your water reaches before you plant .
7 mulch mulch mulch .
8 enjoy every moment .
9 take a win in the bite out of the middle of things the toddler is just tasting so hopefully will grow up a healthy eater .
10 share what you learn .
